06.07.14 - Spitfire Pair

There was so much amazing sport on TV yesterday (Wimbledon, Tour de France, British F1 Grand Prix) I just couldn't drag myself up to the second day of the Air Show. But I did keep my ears open and when I heard the roar of these old merlin engines I rushed outside with my camera. Here are two beautiful Spitfires from the Battle of Britain Memorial Fight directly above our house. Spitfires are such graceful aircraft in flight and we're so lucky they are based nearby. I've cropped this to be a Facebook cover photo, not exactly traditional composition, but increasingly popular!
